Ford Mustang 1974-2010 market review 2020

Ford demonstrated mastery of clairvoyance by adapting its 1974 Mustang to a world that didn’t even know it was about to experience an ‘Oil Shock’.

The new design alienated enthusiast buyers though and over the years hardly anyone bothered to preserve 1970s Mustangs. Now demand is growing, values have surged and good cars are very scarce.

Australian interest in Mustangs also took a rest until the 1990s, encouraging Ford to import some 2001 Cobra coupes and convertibles. Sadly they were way too expensive, slow to sell and today rarely exceed $30,000.

2006 brought another reshaped Mustang but only the less common variations including GT500 Shelbys, the Super Snake and S281 Saleen offer prospects for enthusiast buyers.

V8 Coupe/Conv. 1974-92 $19,340 [8]

GT/Cobra Coupe 1995-03 $29,755 [13]

Cobra Conv. 1998-03 $37,690 [13]

Mustang GT 2005-08 $58,080 [6]

Shelby GT500 2006-10 $104,170 [7]

Saleen (2006-08) $54,500 [1]
